Grew up amongst alligators and swamps, cut my teeth as a teen running around subway tunnels and tower tops, planted every seed left from each fruit I ate into lava surrounded by ocean and watched it grow, and then found myself riding a bike around a city that once upon a time was a land of grandmother oaks. This is all more literal than it sounds.
What I’m doing with my life
Going to school to become an RN and a stem cell researcher. Focusing on school, work, dreaming, and being healthy while still having fun being not healthy sometimes (weekends;). Loving the Bay Area especially Oakland. Riding my bike a lot. Volunteering at the Children's Hospital. And doing an internship at a glass shop learning the art form.
I’m really good at
Exploring the city. Trying new recipies. Building things. Dreaming (I'm a futurist). Rreading your screen play/novel/essay - for clarity not for spelling :P

The six things I could never do without
Immaterial things like real affection, great conversation, active time in nature, laugh out loud humor, the internet and podcasts. Okay okay I guess the last two are more magically ethereal things rather than absolutly immaterial.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Future inventions like bacterial sunblock that always lives on you and invisible jelly shields made of inteligent smoke for bicyclists.
Will Millennial's be the first humans to live for a whole millennia?
On a typical Friday night I am
Maybe drinking and eating and dancing. Maybe dinner with friends. Maybe Netflixing.
